I'd like to see someone from SEGA actually playing "the game"... Are we just chumps, or is there actually a game to play? We don't even have a shill lol.
Converse with fellow players
forget "content"... why would i even create a party? a PARTY.
Surely the base requirement for an online MMO would be ppl creating parties together..
No? Fuck parties? Actually prevent ppl from making parties before an UQ for some reason? In turn make the whole idea of a party (IN AN MMO!) a waste of time? OK then. Why not. That seems like a good idea.
I should join an alliance to ... uhh.. wait, oh, there's nothing to do there. Joining an alliance does literally nothing. There's no reason to even join a PARTY for fuck's sake, let alone an alliance.. a PARTY. They literally removed every reason to play with your friends.
IT DOSENT MATTER BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING TO GRIND FOR
I miss the beacons.
I honestly doubt any of the SEGA staff actually plays the game. I challenge a staff member to "party" with me for their daily rock collecting. Let's go.
@El-Zenchi I..What? Did you even bother reading it? Up until June I've been a premium subscriber.
Don't mind him, he's just a delusional sega fanboy. He's all over these forums just ripping on anyone that doesn't love getting fleeced.
@El-Zenchi said in Genuine concerns about the game and its practices:
Too much writing for simply begging for free stuff
So, do you work for sega? Does your dad work there or something?
How many times have you been banned?
Greed will be their downfall if they don't provide something worth paying for.
I started playing base but the market makes me so angry, everything I feared about that Cradle nightmare came true. I'm angry at how they treated PSO2 and I'm angry about how NGS is doing right now. There's just no joy in playing anymore that I just log out again. Their scratches suck, I liked their PSO2 ones, I happily paid for each and every one and now there's not even anything worth buying. I don't understand how they can even ruin scratches of all things, it's their big money maker and they blew it.
I feel ya.
I want to support this battle system. It's awesome! I always bought premium, and would throw some bucks at the scratch if there was anything I liked. But I'm not paying premium just to collect rocks, and all the scratches are NGS-robot-clothes aesthetic (no-thanks) and mega-greedy scratch bonuses. That's the game to me right now.. just collecting rocks and wtf-are-they-serious? scratches in a ridiculous market.
Whoever greenlit that greed-survey should be sweating. Customers were already feeling kind of ripped off, but that survey just confirmed it for everyone.
I haven't played since they 'restocked' the seasonal shop (har-har), and I let my premium expire.
Took that money and bought FFXIV, currently lvl22. I much prefer the battle system in PSO2, but at least there's fuckin GAME to play with FFXIV.
@Reiven said in NGS Headline - July 27:
Unfortunately, they fumbled pretty spectacularly. Now they are going to have to compete with new games releasing while they have already had a rather disastrous launch, coupled with pretty sparse content having driven players away from the game. Sure, some may come back to take a look, but if they are invested in any of the other games releasing later in the year, they won't remain. It really makes me sad that Sega had a chance to expand the game so it wasn't as "niche", and just, did nothing with it.
I just want someone from Sega to address what the hell is going on.
A community manner, a GM, someone... The players are clearly being ignored and taken for granted. The cavalier attitude and blatant greed on display is offensive.
How can they honestly think this is ok?
@Anarchy-Marine From the abridged version of PSO2's history I was given by friends that played on the JP servers, Sega's higher ups (producers, executives, etc.) really don't know what they're doing most of the time.
To be fair, it's just one guy that they keep making the director of new projects.
God tier post. And real talk, another one of my friends quit just today. He told me to my face that he's done with the franchise.
I have two friends doing the same.
